Kevin Bacon on ‘X-Men: First Class’ and Whether He’ll See the ‘Footloose’ Remake
Posted January 19, 2011 | By Sharon Knolle
Bacon teased some great scenes opposite the new Magneto (Michael Fassbender of ‘Inglourious Basterds’) and his character’s cool ’60s style, including a private inner sanctum and his own sub.
What was the most fun part of playing this character?
I have a really newfound appreciation for those actors, Heath Ledger, Johnny Depp, Robert Downey Jr., and Hugh Jackman, that are able to work within this kind of genre with all the green screen and create great, memorable performances. It’s very difficult; for me the most fun is always connecting on a scene and working with another actor to try to make that scene work. There was a scene near the end of the film between me and Michael Fassbender (Magneto) and the scene was okay, but I don’t think either one of us was figuring it out. So Matthew let us spend a weekend up at his house and really figured it out from an acting standpoint, what this moment really means between these two. And that’s the fun stuff. Hanging from a crane is fun too, but not as fun as actually connecting with another actor.
